    Introducing a new creative team everyone will be talking about—superstar talent writer MAT GROOM and artist EDUARDO FERIGATO. When chaos besieges the kingdom of Arcadia, warrior Amala Citlali sees it as her chance to escape her clearly-defined role—and to change her destiny. But she could never have predicted that it would also be her chance to confront her God. In his debut editorial role, comics veteran KYLE HIGGINS guides this intimate, worlds-spanning story of self-discovery.

  • Self/Made #1 (Published by Image Comics; Review by Joey Edsall; 'Rama Rating: 8 out of 10):

    Self/Made #1 is a comic for which the final pages will make or break it as a series. Everything hinges on the subtlety with which it hints that final revelation and the way that it manages to create stakes out of a situation that could very easily be uninspiring. What starts as a straightforward though still visually unique fantasy epic changes entirely to a science fiction story before everything ends, but once readers reach that conclusion, the strange ways in which the characters interact, the odd linearity of the plot, and the ways in which even the panel borders contribute to the sense that what you see is not necessarily what you think it is, all start to make sense. While the opening has some pacing and character motivation issues, Writer Mat Groom excels when the comic nears its conclusion as everything starts to click together. The art team of artist Eduardo Ferigato and colorist Marcelo Costa walk the delicate line between the two worlds the comic straddles with ease, with Ferigato’s facial work and Costa’s lighting being of particular note. Self/Made #1 is difficult to critique. It’s greatest quality is, by far, its promise of what is to come.
